    An intriguing scene is carved into the handle of this fascinating French folk art cane. Crafted entirely of hardwood, the grip is carved to depict a postman taking refreshment with a monstrous mythological beast. The fantastical scene is enhanced by a carved motif of fruiting vines, which appear to blossom from the delightful stick's shaft.
